Scattered throughout the local area are 19 flower gardens laid out to resemble quilts. They are beautiful and it's fun to watch them develop as their plants grow and flowers bloom. Just driving around town, I have the opportunity to see several of them throughout the summer. But, one garden in particular is my favorite.
Every year, the local botanical garden grows the Vera Bradley Quilt Garden. It's inspired by the current breast cancer awareness pattern and a quilt designed by a local artist using that fabric. This year, the quilt, Star of Hope, used the Tea Garden pattern.
On my grandma's birthday back in August, we went for a walk at the botanical garden and I was able to get some pictures of this year's Vera Bradley Quilt Garden and I wanted to share them with you! Unfortunately, since I didn't know we were going to the garden, all I had was my phone camera, so the pictures aren't the greatest, but I think they give you a good idea of what the garden looks like.

I'm excited to see what they come up with next year using the Ribbons pattern since it is my new favorite pattern!
